Section 21 abolition stinks!

Jeepers Luke!! I was just having my lunch when I started to read this.....but the responses have been amusing. Perhaps these tenants are just preparing to audition for a remake of the 2002 film "The Chosen Phew" !

Here we go again - PRS Right to Buy!

Just what are the "more socially productive investments" mentioned in the posting? The proposer doesn't say. Providing safe homes to rent in the PRS is surely "socially productive" since the local authorities don't have sufficient means? Furthermore, the tax we pay on our rental income, VAT on our expenditure/maintenance/advisors etc, inflated SDLT, is that not socially productive? Not to mention keeping judges and bailiffs in gainful employment? So the proposition is to grant discounted R2B, disenfranchising LLs with older properties, whilst ring-fencing the corporate developers with their new-builds!... Read More
